    Default How Good Budget Tyres?

    I need to get two new 215/55/16 tyres for the front of my Vectra 1.9. With a very tight budget I've got Avon, Firestone, Falken and Kuymo on my list but I am very interested in good tyre wear. I know a few people were praising Falken tyres but I haven't read how well these tyres last.

    Can anyone comment on Falken tyre wear or for that matter any other of the tyres on my list.

    Any info would be gratefully accepted.

    Thanks.

    I find the Kumhos tend to wear rather well, had them on a few cars.

    Had a set of Falkens in the past but they wore out very quickly in my experience.

    Used to have Eagle Nct's but at £130.00 each.................Way too much....

    Just fitted 4 x Falken Ze912's,all 4 fully balanced and fitted £300.00 on the nose.

    They have only been on a week and i must say they are very quiet.
    Have not had the pleasure of using them in the wet yet though.

    No fullrun's in your list, whats the matter. Road noise and sliding in the wet not your thing

    You cant go wrong with firestones. They are made by bridgestone so you know your getting a good tyre. Great all round ability.
